Huis Ten Bosch (House in the Forest)4.6
Huis Ten Bosch, one of the largest theme parks in Japan, is a park recreating a Dutch town. The park is named after a residence of the Dutch Royal Family and means 'house in the forest'. In a picturesque, forested environment, there are a huge variety of activities that both adults and children can enjoy. Amusement rides, art galleries and hotel are also available.
This is a year-round spot with seasonal flowers blooming and various events taking place at different times of the year. Among the most popular are the tulip festival from February to April, the moss pink garden where 250,000 stumps blooming in April, and fascinating illumination in the winter months.

Really great fun and reasonably priced. This is a much more Japanese style park so don't expect thrill rides but the VR, aesthetics, and mix of Japanese and European cultures are done perfectly. My family and I walked and spent the whole day on a single day passport. This allowed us in to everything expect one attraction for free. We walked to make sure we could really look around. The details and service to the people are commensurate with the culture of the local area in being second to none.
Highly recommend going with family and friends and try to hit up as many sub areas as possible. Easily accessible by train, this was a great time at a great price.

Beautiful place, so much to see! I got a day and 1/2 ticket and felt like I could do more. Definitely recommend getting the 1 and 1/2 day ticket if you're staying close by.
It didn't feel like a full-on amusement park. You have to go for the night and day time because both offer amazing views. Light show at night and everything else during the day.
There's an owl "shop" outside the park, you can go in and pet real owls!!
If I'm ever down that part of Japan again I will definitely go back!

Visited in summer and it was really too hot. Would be nicer theme park to walk around if the weather is cooler.

Can you imagine that Huis Ten Bosch was originally a farmland that was reclaimed from the sea. The land was filled with sluge, so the first thing they had to do was to improve the soil quality. They dug the land, composted it, and planted carefully selected 700,000 plants. Now, there is an eco friendly, environmentally conscious theme park. The garbage from hotels and restaurants is converted to fetilizer that is used in the park, and the waste water from the park is clearler than the water in Omura Bay, which the park faces. The park depends on the solar power generation for its electric supply. Huis Ten Bosch is not mere a theme park but the town of our future.Read moreClose
